Wheelin Dogs
« on: March 09, 2015, 09:46:56 PM »

Who has takin their dogs wheeling? I'm taking my dog up to the Rubicon in 2 weeks and we are hiking into spider lake. Where can I get a lighter collar for him that's waterproof? Any recommendations?

Also, when you do have your rigs, where do they stay/sit? I know Patrick stacked a box and she had something to lay on.

My German Wirehair/Lab mix. He's a year and a half old.

From my experience with my dog and wheeling/camping. I only brought him if we had a basecamp and could unload our stuff. Next dog will be an ankle biter. After having an 80lb dog, I wouldn't do that again. When getting to the trail he sat in passengers lap. On the trail we had just a small ice chest for lunch and a few drinks. The dog had the rest of the back of the Jeep. Make sure you tie the ice chest down so it does not move at all.  Possibly put the ice chest on an outside rack. Make sure they have enough room to lay down comfortably. Also will need something for the floor to reduce the heat coming up thru it.

I hate wheeling with other peoples dogs.  Im talking about the ones that walk the trail and I always have to worry about were they are even though the owners say "they know how to stay out of the way"

If a puppy they will grow out of that. Ours did. probably will need to change feeding habits for traveling.

Yeah, she's six (people years), she used to like all the time as a puppy, then she grew out of it. She shit in my back seat a mile after we first got her, I should have gave her back! She's a good dog, just not a windy twisty road kind of dog, oh well.

I won't let him get in the way. Too much damn money invested in him to lose him to a 40" MTR.  He pretty much sticks by side when I make him.  Just figured it would be fun to have him up there.   He doesn't get sick from car rides either
